2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refrigerated can from JoePessie. Pours deep copper with nice off-white head. Some lacing, medium body, resinous texture, medium carbonation and pine aroma. Taste is citrus, lots of pine, and bitter hop finish. Not balanced, too much pine, won’t be seeking out.

Very good drinking DIPA, with smooth understated carbonation, much citrus flavour. Golden colour. Hops like a 1.5 ipa than a dipa. The citrus is in the nose.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Pawola22 - thanks, dude! Sort of an oily, glassy dark orange pour, with less than impressive carbonation. Medium head, not too much lacing. Nose is sharp and grassy, with a dose of sweet booziness late. Taste is a bit hot and heavy on the faded malts, with thin sweetness an echo of once-fresh hops.

12oz can from emelius. Dirty and hazy amber, Nice aroma of resin hops but a little sharp, citrus undertone with a strong malt backbone. Moderate body and carbonation, little bit of initial sweetness but becomes bitter and grows more so. Leaves a nice blend of resin hops and malt. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured out of can into a sniffer.
Aroma: Crisp, clean citrus. Much more of a mild hoppy smell than I expected.
Appearance: Small head when poured into a very clean glass. Golden in color with light lacing left behind.
Taste: Medium level of hops that are well pronounced after you take a drink. Hops start with floral and citrus but finish with resin and earth tones. Almost no alcohol bite.
Palate: Very smooth no bite to the alcohol, slightly viscous (in a good way).
Overall: Very nice beer with a clean crisp taste. Nice to drink and great smell to boot! It stands up to Hopslam and other DIPA’s I have had! Great job Wild Onion!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can from Blue Dog Lansdale. Poured a super muddy amber brown body under a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is pretty solid with lots of citrus hops, grapefruit rinds, troical fruits, mangos, bread crusts. The body is solid with stronger carbonation and a lingering bitter bite over a fuller mouthfeel, nice. Flavor of older oranges, light citrus rinds, bread, crusts and cereal. Good stuff.
